Our Little Adventure to SeaLifeA glimpse under the sea.

Why is the ocean so blue? Because all the fish go blu blu blu!

Our Little Adventure to SeaLifeFrom cute cuddly penguins to an 18 foot crocodile, Sea Life has a range of spectacular creatures to visit. My friend Jess and I (Noah) toured around Sea Life for hours in awe of the quirky yet beautiful creatures.

We started our tour with visiting the “old wife” (a type of fish) swimming around the tank, it was a zebra version of a fish, and we ended with an array show of penguins waddling, sliding, and swimming at jet speed. There were snakes, turtles, rays, sea horses, frogs, fish, other types of fish, and even more fish (including fish & chips). There was a lot to learn, every specific animal was very unique; for example, the Archer fish can shoot jets of water at its prey to render it useless and make a nice meal out of it – the beauty of nature. We also swung by the crocodile enclosure, the salt water crocodile was massive but lonesome unfortunately 😦

 

Then we went to watch the 4D Ice Age movie. Found out that 4D movie theaters can be a little mischievous. It will splash of water a your feet, or sprays snow from above and give you a little fright from the sudden jolt on the chair.

 

After spending about two hours of wandering around and looking at cute little fishies, we felt a bit peckish. So, we went to the cafeteria and neither of us ordered fish and chips because we had had been around too many fish for a day (but honestly I was pretty surprised they sold fish & chips, pretty ironic if you think about it).  I had onion rings and a beef burger, and Jess had a chicken schnitzel burger. The fast food was delicious though apparently, calories matter in this day and age sooo…I got a diet coke (obviously it makes SUCH a big difference, DEFINITELY the healthiest choice) and we were lucky enough to grab the spot by the window with the view of the Yarra river.

We continued our tour and found nemo swimming. Was he lost?!? Because if he was, I think I just found him. But after finding nemo, I think we found 50 more nemos :/

The Big Tank, where all the big fish swim. Sharks, rays, lots of garoupas and other fish. It was huge. We literally stood under the fish tank and we could see close ups of fish swimming along. Every once in a while, a massive sting ray would swim by with its mouth pressed right on the glass pane, it has a smiley face! Massive sharks roamed about as well, they looked ferocious.
